The initiative for this website was taken by V.V.V. & Toerisme Brakel, a non-profit association for tourist traffic.
The Belgian city of Brakel is situated in the south of the province of East Flanders 45 km west of Brussels and 35 km south of Ghent, the capital of the province. Brakel is surrounded by Oudenaarde, Ronse, Zottegem and Geraardsbergen. The undulating and hilly landscape – a patchwork of fields, pastures and woods – is a typical feature of both the Flemish Ardennes and the Zwalm region. And the famous setting for the Tour of Flanders bicycle race.
The aim of this website is to promote Brakel and its tourist activities. You will also be informed about the VVV and its rich history, the accomplishments after 25 years and the available tourist publications, which can be ordered.
Come and have an active break in Brakel. Cycling, mountainbiking, walking … Everything is here to explore the region your own favourite way. Contact us. We will arrange for accommodation.
